    Certainly makes more sense now why they decided to let Davon and Tramon get sererely overpaid in free agency.

    Who knows if Goodson is the answer but I like that he's confident and he certainly has the tools. We'll see. Datone said he wanted to be the best defensive player in the league last year. Talk is cheap.

    Who's Datone? And I like Goodson, he's a smooth athlete so maybe with some in game reps he can do what Sam shields did and become a serviceable player.

    Datone Jones. He plays for a team called the Packers.

    You missed the sarcasm bro...I know who he is, and who he plays for smh. The datone jones drafted in the first round by the great TT out of UCLA who's done absolutely nothing in 2 seasons.

    Well, he is on the team at this point but he's bordering on that 4 letter word.
    As for Goodson hopefully he can prove himself a worthy pick.

    Well, he certainly has the attitude of a cover corner. That's a start.

    However, the proof is in the putting, Cervantes notwithstanding. ;) I wish I had a Benjamin for every cocky cornerback who became a regular burn victim.

    I would like to hear Rodgers' honest opinion of Goodson. Obviously it was just practice but he would know how often Goodson made a legit play vs. his throwing the ball in practice as he has in games when he gets a "free" play.
    And you're an a hole.

    Isn't "brah", not "bro", the current locution favored among trendsetters? I have no problem with going old school, but "bro" does sound a little 2010. ;)

    I read the article yesterday as well and was wondering about what Rodgers is thinking about a corner, who hasn't played a single snap in the league, bragging about picking him off on the scout team several times.

    It kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Talk is cheap, better prove it on the field.

    Thanks for that, Dan115.
    Talk is cheap but IMO what Rodgers thinks about it would depend upon whether or not he actually said that to Goodson.

    I didn't read it that way. I thought he was sufficiently deferential to Rodgers and Nelson. He was essentially quoting Rodgers. I'm excited and somewhat relieved after reading that article. More proof that a lot goes on behind closed doors that we fans aren't privy to. Time will tell if once again TT has caught lightning in a bottle. Joe Whitt must be really, really good. I wish I felt the same way about the DL coach.

    Don't get me wrong, if Goodson is actually right about it I'm excited, but I would feel better about it if Rodgers or anybody else would have come up with it.

    TT has gambled on a point guard turning out to be a decent cover corner. The way he dumped Rolle and let House and Williams walk he must thing Goodson is the real deal.

    I've been wondering about that, too. Let's hope he's the reincarnation of Herb Adderly.

    He didn't dump Rolle. He was claimed off the practice squad.

    I'd prefer Charles Woodson.
